at the woodrow wilson center and joins me from washington. the killing of ambassador stephens and the attack on the consulate be the lasting memory of hillary clinton's tenure? >> i don't think so. it's an emotional trauma for a secretary of state whose job and performance, frankly, has been pretty flawless over the course of the last four years. but, look, chris stephens and the others were extraordinary americans and had to preside over the destruction of a consulate and the death of the first city ambassador since 1988 is traumatic. and i think it showed up this previous week in some of her responses to the questions in the hearings. >> yeah. and on that, i mean, the fact that she said, you know, it doesn't matter whether it was just some guys out to kill americans or if it was al qaeda at work or there was a protest. will that come back to haunt err hz things get more political if she does run for office? >> it was a strong emotional response, which is completely understandable, particularly in a very partisan washington. but, look, the reality is it does matter, it does matter whether o

underneath me. and the woodrow wilson school could offer most of the econ classes with or without calculus, and you can decide and by the second semester i was thinking, i'm ready for calculus. so i took it and got beaten up, and unfortunately, the class without calculus was taught by ben bernanke. so my hubris meant i did not study macroeconomics with the current fed chair, which is unfortunate. so, that is where i come from. i have in life -- because i do public policy and things like that -- come to appreciate the enormous power of these tools and the math, but it's about, can you tell me why i need to know this? so what i'm going to read now is a section from chapter 5, which is basic probability. the subtitle its, do not buy the stepped warranty on your $99 printer. that you can probably figure out. instead i'm going to tell you a story some of you may remember. this may seem a little old but i hope you recall this. this is a story that begins the chapter, 1981, the joseph suites brewing company spent 1.7ing me fa dollar for what appeared to be a shockingly bold and risky campaign for

harding, woodrow wilson -- i don't want to give away the book, but dwight eisenhower, franklin roosevelt, probably the worst dog in history, john kennedy, followed closely by lyndon johnson, there's ample opportunity. i may have to stretch the to e three or four. [laughter] perhaps the series will send my kids to college. so thanks for that. yes. >> during your historical research, have you discovered similar stories about the private lives of justices of the supreme court, or are they just above reproach? >> yeah, okay. the question about the private lives of justices of the supreme court and other politicians. like i said, the more things change. what you find is throughout history the drama, the plot stays the same in this great production of history, the actors change. early presidents were struggling with issues of privacy. for example, john quip si adams' wife, she was a very private woman, and they had a poor marriage. they fought a lot. and she kind of blamed her husband for some problems the children had. one of the kids may have committed suicide or may have been drunk and fall

. i'd gone to math camp and was thinking of getting my math feet underneath me. the woodrow wilson school, they had the resources where they could offer most of the icon and start classes with the without calculus. and by the second semester i was thinking you know what, i'm ready for calculus. i had kind of growing into this. i felt really confident so i took calculus and i kind of got enough. unfortunately, the class without calculus were taught by ben bernanke. [laughter] so much hubris meant that i did not study natural economics with the current fed chair. which is unfortunate. so that is where i come from. i have in life because i do public policy, -- the enormous power of these tools and the mouth, but really it's about can you tell me what i need to know this. so i want to read the is a section from chapter five which is basic probability. the subtitle is to not buy the extended working on your $99 printer. that you can probably figure out. instead of this story that some of you may room, this may seem all but hope you recall this. in 1981, the joseph schlitz brewing compan

and politically so overdetermined in the united states. culturally we have thought at least since woodrow wilson that unless we can basically make the rest of the world or critical parts of the world look like us, we can't really be safe or secure. we also think that basically all people deep down really want to live like us, so by trying to engineer these outcomes we are actually doing them, we're doing humanity a favor by doing this. and, you know, when there's ample evidence mounting that this is not working, this is actually not congruent, it's going to mean kind of, you know, ideational change, cultural change in way for us. and that's really, really hard, it's really, really hard to do. and i think that's why, you know, people keep coming back to the same experts who are wrong on iran time after time after time after time after time. but they say the right things. they say the culturally and psychologically comforting things. and so we keep coming back to them. we obviously don't say particularly comforting things in this way. but we're going to keep saying them. yes, ma'am. >> [inaudible]

princeton universities graduate college. for instance, president, a presbyterian named woodrow wilson wanted to graduate college located on the main campus. so undergraduates and graduate students would mingle. wilson's adversary, andrew fleming west, wanted to graduate college located where it now is, on a hill a few blocks from the main campus. woodrow wilson was a man of unbending temperament when he was certain he was right, which was almost always. he took his defeat about the graduate college badly. re-signs princeton's presidency, went into politics, and ruined the 20th century. [laughter] i simplify somewhat and exaggerate a bit. i do so to make a point, however. today and for the past century, since woodrow wilson was elected the nation's president, 100 years and one month ago, american politics has been a struggle to determine which of two princetonians best understood what american politics should be. should we practice the politics of woodrow wilson, or princeton's class of 1879? or the politics of james madison, of the class of 1771? what, you may be wondering, has this to do wi
